There has been a lot of attention focused on transportation in the Milwaukee area lately, from the money being spent on rebuilding the Zoo Interchange to the construction that has started on the city’s new streetcar system.

But on this edition of UWM Today, we’re going to focus on a much simpler form of getting around — riding your bike and walking. Joining us in the studio is Bob Schneider, assistant professor of urban planning at UWM.
 

Bob is a national expert on how cities can create bike-friendly and pedestrian-friendly streets and roads. He also has created a new system for examining the causes of crashes that end up injuring or killing bikers and walkers.
